I am the holder of legacy Internet resources that are not being used or that are being partially used. Can I return them to the free address pool?

Yes you can, by contacting . The RIPE NCC will return to IANA any legacy IPv4 address space that is returned to our organisation, following the global policy that enables IANA to redistribute any recovered IPv4 address space equally among the RIRs.
